Analysis and Optimization of fibre composite lightweight structures

Using the most advanced computer systems for lightweight engineers new possibilities arise to analyze and design fiber-polymer-composite parts. Contrary to conventional materials, with fiber composites one has to rely much more on computation to achieve the full potential this material offers. This thesis closes the gap between the methods used to design with fiber-polymer-composites and modern analysis- and optimization methods. Using selected fiber composite parts it is demonstrated how to use these methods. Particularly the FEM-computation is carried out for wind turbine rotor blades, truck leaf springs, drive shafts, torsion bar springs and pressure vessels. - Using the presented numerical optimization methods laminate optimization of plane and also thick walled parts as well as shape optimization of fiber composite shells are demonstrated.
